About me

Occupation Illustrator / Designer
Location Memphis, TN, United States
Introduction I am a full-time student at Memphis College of Art, where I am pursuing a BFA with a concentration in Illustration. In my spare time at MCA, I am the Editor of the Black & White. I'm currently interning at a local design firm called Combustion. Out of school, I manage Rozelle Artists Guild, Inc., an artists collective I co-founded in 2006. To pay the bills, I bartend on Beale Street for the Historic Daisy Theatre, and take on freelance commissions. I also have my own caricature services, HolterDent. On the side, I've been also working on a short graphic novel for nearly two years, which I have successfully posted none of on the internet.

In short, I am a workaholic.

I also like autumn foliage, Netflix, zombie lore, air-drying, Mesoamerican culture, my snakey, MAD Magazine, and a nice glass of Pinot Grigio.
